Chantal is thrilled to join the Greene Street Friends community this year! 

Chantal Barr is the Lower School Literacy and Learning Specialist for grades Pre-K through 5. Prior to coming to Greene Street, Chantal was a highly effective classroom teacher for 8 years. Her job this year combines her two favorite passions in teaching: connecting with adults about teaching and ensuring all students succeed now and in the future. 

She obtained her Bachelors in Elementary Education and Early Childhood Education from Arcadia University as well as her Master’s in Special Education. Earlier this year, Chantal earned her Principal Certification through the PhillyPLUS program and is working toward a doctorate in Educational Leadership from St.Joseph’s University. 

Chantal is the parent of two new students and is excited to have her whole family as part of the community. When not at school, she enjoys doing crafts with her kids, running, and being outdoors in the sun!
